The Milwaukee Bucks’ decision to fire head coach Jason Kidd was not a simple one. Despite reasons to justify the move, also to concern was Kidd’s relationship with Giannis Antetokounmpo, which was obviously so solid that Giannis even offered to go to bat for Kidd 15 minutes before the news broke in an effort to save Kidd’s job. That’s led some to believe that maybe the Greek Freak isn’t so fond of the franchise that drafted him. But reportedly, that’s not exactly the case. Via ESPN’s Zach Lowe: Is that roster good enough to keep up with Philly and Boston? Despite Kidd’s revelation (via ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne) that Antetokounmpo offered to try to save his job, Kidd’s firing will cause no lingering rift between the Bucks and their star, sources close to him say. Nudging up against a hard ceiling every spring might.
